A Mexico man is scheduled to be arraigned at 10:00 tomorrow morning [Tuesday] in Audrain County Court on numerous charges including abuse of a child and armed criminal action.

According to a probable cause statement, 25 year old Dylan Tylor Applebee was arrested after the 7 year old victim  reported Applebee had struck him multiple times with a bar of soap inside a purple pillowcase, causing bruising.

Applebee is being held on a 50 thousand dollar cash only bond.
